September 2018

According to the record keepers this Australian winter has been much drier than usual and there are certainly drought conditions in the eastern states. I wanted to make a comparison between the flowers this year and previous ones but I hadn’t posted any for September so this is going to be my starting point.

This month I’m only recording plants which haven’t had any supplemental watering  since June.

By far the most successful plants at our place are Grevilleas so they get a gallery all to themselves. This year the shrubs are completely covered in flowers, the best they’ve ever been.

Some of the plants in the next gallery will get supplementary water as the weather heats up.

Now for what I consider weeds ie plants growing enthusiastically where I don’t want them!
